    Hi,

    We brought our RS last July and just had our first service (cars 5th) and MOT. It’s a 17 plate and has only done 6,792 miles.

    We have an advisory that they’ve found a slight oil leak from the turbo oil feed pipe. I’ve been reading on this forum that lots of people have had a similar issue following the HG replacement. Ours fell in that recall period but it doesn’t seem like it was affected.

     

    Unsure what the issue could be as I’ve seen lots of different suggestions. They’ve quote us £210 presumably to replace the pipe. Anyone with the same issue?

     

    Thanks

    Its never the pipe.
    It is the headgasket.
    You are gonna pay 120 quid for nothing.
    I changed the turbo line 4 times and until they redid the headgasket the leaks never stopped.

    Just had the same problem, oil round feed pipe/banjo bolt luckily my local Ford dealer confirmed it was the head gasket again, it was done in the first recall so fingers crossed all sorted, hope you get yours done ok

    Looks like I may have the same issue as noted oil leakage down from the oil feed banjo. I contacted Ford, may sound daft but are Ford responding and rectifying these oil leak issues owners have?

    Similar situation, I’ve only owned my car since January this year. Waiting to see what Ford say.
